  5. 5. WESTCHESTER DISPLAYS WST has created a rotating Black History Month display. Each week, different materials from the collection will be featured and a new interactive element will be incorporated. This week is "Heroes of Black History." We also have created a survey using Survey Monkey to engage students in conversation: "Do we still need a Black History Month? Why or why not?" Results will be shared at the end of the week. Later in the month we hope feature Black History and the Arts and do a Hip-Hop Crossword Puzzle Challenge. Photos & Caption submitted by Matthew & JIM
  6. 6. I n other WST NEWS….. In other news, we continue to retool our study room. We have heavily weeded our VHS collection, moved all of the educational films and DVD overflow to the rest of the AV collection in the stacks, and will soon be moving these empty shelves out. We anticipate getting a flatscreen TV and possibly a host of other tools to make the room a really productive, tech-equipped workspace. We were going to rename it the "White Plains Room" but now anticipate having a student contest to name the room. Hopefully we'll have a more exciting picture for the next Library Buzz!

  7. 7. Photos & Caption submitted by Matthew & JIM The Weekly FYI basically keeps track of noteworthy reference questions and we share with each other. Then we create a sign and share with other students. The point is to share information that more than one student will find useful.
  8. 8. The Paramus Library initiated the “Reel View” - a film club for students and associates. The first movie selected for discussion, which we all saw on our own time, was 50/50. Due to the scheduling conflict of several of associates, the club met twice: on Thursday February 2 nd and Friday February 3 rd . In all 10 people attended both meetings. Each day the discussions related to different plots and characters, which I found particularly appealing as the leader of this first meeting. The next movie the club is going to discuss is “Moneyball.” Photos & Caption submitted by Maria
  9. 9. The works of the Interior Design students were on display at Paramus Campus. I used the library Flip camera to record the display and later shared it with the faculty and the students to the great cheer of both groups. The displayed designs, mostly by the new students, looked amazing. See for yourself! We tried to change our display areas: windowsill and the top of the magazine rack, every week or so. This month focus is obviously on the Black History Month, but we also displayed materials for the Super Bowl, Hollywood award season, Valentine’s Day. To be more scrupulous about the Black History Barbara prepared a displayed on Romare Bearden for his 10 th birthday anniversary. Paramus Displays Photos & Caption submitted by Maria
